President Obama's longtime personal physician has weighed in on the subject of Hillary Clinton's health.
Although Clinton's doctor pronounced her fit to serve as president in a July 2015 letter, conspiracy theorists and others have speculated about brain damage, seizures, Parkinson's disease, and other alleged maladies afflicting the Democrat presidential nominee. The subject of Hillary Clinton's health has become a hot topic on social media evidenced by the trending hashtag #HillarysHealth and has subsequently made its way into the mainstream news media.
In July 2015, the campaign released information indicating that Hillary Clinton takes prescriptions for an underactive thyroid and for blood clots. Clinton suffered a concussion in 2012.
During an interview with Erin Burnett on CNN last night, Dr. David Scheiner, Obama's former physician, insisted that the two-page doctor's note is insufficient to put the matter to rest, as is the one-pager issued by Trump's medical provider.
"There are a number of questions I have. First of all, she's also 68 years old, and while I think that medical letter was well written and was very professional, unlike Dr. Bornstein's, it's not enough. For example, she's on Coumadin, a medication to prevent blood clots…I'd like to know how well she's being controlled. That's a difficult drug to use. Also, I think she should have…a thorough neurological examination in 2016. We know what happens to football players, how they begin to lose their cognitive ability. I think both of them should release their records."
